Who knew rice-fields could be such a beautiful medium?
A village in northeastern Japan used rice plants to create an image commemorating Mount Fuji’s registration as a UNESCO world cultural heritage site last year.
This image shows a scene from a legend about Mount Fuji and a heavenly maiden.
Ten kinds of rice plants of various colors were used to depict the maiden wearing a feathery robe while floating over Mount Fuji and a pine forest.
Rice-field art is an annual tourist event in the village.
The rice field art is to remain on display through mid-August.
